​Space Available has turned plastic waste into a turntable casing

We hope that Space Available never run out of ideas for things to make for the music industry from recycled plastic. First the Bali-based creative platform, who are making space for a sustainable future, gave us a chair that doubled as a record box in collaboration with Peggy Gou, then a record box and now a turntable case.

The casing is made from 100% plastic waste that’s been collected and recycled from rivers and landfills around Indonesia and is where it gets its tonal-blue swirl pattern. The base is made from reclaimed plywood with hardware crafted by artisans. The casing is also sized and shaped to fit a Technics turntable, more specifically the 1210/1200, with exact measurements coming in at 452 x 173 x 356 cm.

The Recycled Plastic Turntable Casing can be purchased directly from Space Available on their website, Mr. Porter, Siwilai Store in Bangkok, Supply Store in Australia, Roden Gray in Canada and LN-CC and Selfridges in London

Space Available is also planting two trees for every purchase.

Space Available is a Bali-based creative platform founded by former Potato Head creative director Dan Mitchell and led by a community of designers, artists, scientists and environmentalists who are connecting the dots between nature, design, culture and the future. Their mission is ‘Making Space for a Sustainable Future’ and combine radical recycling with future craft and digital communication for the new world.

“It’s our belief that the pandemic of 2020 has created a new space. A space available for us to reflect, grow and design new systems of well being, for ourselves and the environment around us.”
